RPMGlobal Seeks To Align Short And Long Term Mine Planning With Attain
Posted by Daniel Gleeson on Jun 3, 2021
RPMGlobal Expands Its Software Optimization Suite With The Launch Of Attain, A Solution The Company Says Helps Mining Planners Maintain Alignment Between Their Long And Short-Term Production Schedules And Improve Current Value net (NPV) of their operations.
The company explained, “The dynamic nature of mining operations creates a high degree of uncertainty over many different elements. Unforeseen events often occur that force mining planners to reschedule their mining plan. If the short-term mining plan deviates too much from the long-term plan, value can be eroded by failure to meet long-term strategic goals.
Attain is a software solution that solves the challenge of misalignment of the mine planning horizon by ensuring that mine operational planning is consistently aligned with the long-term plan, which helps optimize short-term schedules and d ‘improve NPV, RPMGlobal claims.
Once a schedule is no longer aligned with the long term plan, Attain will produce achievable and optimized short term schedules aligned with the long term schedule. These alternatives are offered to the mine planner who is then able to review and select the preferred short term schedule.
Attain is aiming for a planning horizon of two to six months and establishes a short-term schedule that takes into account actual results to date while maintaining alignment with the long-term plan, he says.
“With a very intuitive user interface, the user simply selects their preferred long-term plan which then becomes Attain’s optimization goal,” added RPMGlobal.
RPMGlobal CEO Richard Mathews said: “Short-term planners always react to events that cause a deviation from the mine plan, but they often have no way of knowing what the unintended consequences of decisions are. re-planning that results. are on the life of the mine.
“With Attain, users can make informed decisions while adjusting the short-term plan knowing that long-term plan goals are being met. Attain complements all mine planning tools and processes used by mining operations.
Mathews said the team is excited to bring the Attain solution to market and will seek feedback from early adopters to prioritize future development.
